Here are some new pictures of the 24 Kilates x New Balance x New Era “Modernist Pack” which is inspired by the architecture in Barcelona. Colored tiling is one of Antoni Gaudi’s signature designs where he has used this theme in many of his popular tourist destinations. 24 Kilates, the boutique in Barcelona, has taken this inspiration and applied in onto a New Balance sneaker as well as a New Era cap forming the “Modernist Pack”. Included in this pack is a New Balance M1700 and a New Era 59Fifty Fitted Cap. These will release on April 12th at the 24 Kilates store only. Don’t miss out if you’re in town.

Like many streetwear brand owners, Hiroaki Shitano started his label, Whiz, by printing t-shirts which were given away to close friends. The brand grew in popularity by the word of mouth and eventually Whiz was able to open their own store, Lump. The concept of the brand is Hiroaki’s vision of the Tokyo culture therefore each season may greatly differ in style.
Whiz has recently launched their new 2008 Spring/Summer “Minor Threat” collection which was released a few weeks ago at the Lump store. Here’s part two of the collection which continues on the Mayan theme. These new pieces should now be available at Lump.
